I'm writing to inquire about the remaining steps to
include the two "June 2004" Hebrew items in the UCS.
In June they were voted on positively by the American
Redmond-Silicon Valley-based UTC and by the
international JTC 1/SC2, the character set committee
for ISO worldwide.
Now I presume the 31 paid member countries of
ISO/IEC JTC 1/SC 2----Austria, Belgium, Canada, China,
Denmark, Egypt, Finland, France, Germany....Sweden,
Thailand, Tunisia, U.S.A.---are voting electronically
on these Hebrew items.
Are there a 4th and 5th steps, or is the 31-country
vote the end of all that?
It appears to me that Israel is not an official member
of this committee, so her ISO leaders will not be
voting. Is this correct? Or are exceptions made when
a special vote such as this occurs?
Also, will the Hebrew list and other interested
parties be given an opportunity to make remarks on
placement of these items within the main Hebrew block?
These are both core Tiberian items, used by the
standard Michigan-Claremont-Westminster text, so there
is *no* controversy with them.
